On Saturday Febuary 4th Langara is excited to host the Senior boys basketball teams from Tupper and Walnut Grove at 4pm. It is one game of a series called East Side Story which pits local East Vancouver basketball teams against top basketball programs from across the province. The event has been planned by Jeff Gourley coach at Tupper with the support of mens basketball coaches Jake McCallum (Langara), Jordan Yu (Capilano) and Kevin Hanson (UBC), each of whose institution will be hosting a game. “I thought that this would be a great thing,” says Gourley. “To be able to get all of the kids in the local neighbourhood to be able to come see Langara play, Cap play, UBC play. This is when they can start to dream. This is when they can say ‘Oh, that is what one of the best college players in Canada looks like’ or ‘That is what a UBC player looks like.’ The Langara men will be facing the Douglas College Royals following the high school game at 6pm.
